Rush for Violin and Live Electronics

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Rush provides another example of my predilection for plundering the annals of rock for material; in this case the progressive rock band Rush provided a 7-note melodic motif and a technique of generating number sequences from Morse Code which are used to control rhythmic parameters in the work. Rush is essentially a concerto for violin and electronic ensemble, and, as such, adopts the tried and trusted approach of articulating a conflict scenario between soloist and ensemble. In the violin writing I have further pursued my interest in exploring a sound world embracing pitched and non-pitched sounds and in the use of extended techniques.
